Course Description

The course will examine two strains of thought in social psychology: the evolutionary perspective (mostly within the discipline of psychology) and the symbolic interactionist tradition and its offshoots (within the discipline of sociology). In addition to learning concepts and theories from these perspectives, students will examine recent research to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of these approaches.

Grading Policy

Assignments include one-page papers, a project applying a theory or concept (to be completed alone or working with a partner, according to students' preferences), and a written report on the project in lieu of a comprehensive final exam.
